Luis Gispert: Tender Game, at David Castillo Gallery, Miami

February 6 – March 29, 2014

David Castillo Gallery
2234 NW 2nd Avenue
Miami, Florida 33127

David Castillo Gallery is proud to present Tender Game, new works in photography by Luis Gispert.

The viewer is alone inside the girth of a Lockheed C-5. The console is thick with buttons and levers, every mechanical detail exposed. The head-on view from the windshield is magnificent. Luis Gispert’s formal use of scale, perspective, and composition create environments at once dazzling and disarming.

The military aircraft featured in the artist’s high-res chromogenic prints ring the gallery like pop spectacle. Old Shaky, a Cold War relic, lifts invisible ordinance over the German Alps. Superstrattois a superstar in purple twilight. Fat Hercules, a player in every air force in the world since 1957, sizes up the South Dakota Badlands veined with snow. Glider has the face of a segmented grasshopper over Bryce Canyon. Fat Fred is as ubiquitous in battle as the salt of the Bonneville flats over which it flashes.

Luis Gispert’s DECEPCIÓN: A New York Artist Takes the Long View of Customizer Culture

The New York Times

September 21, 2011, 6:00 am

By PHIL PATTON

Decepción,” the title of Luis Gisbert’s show at the uptown Mary Boone Gallery, at 745 Fifth Avenue, translates from the Spanish not to its English cognate, but more literally to disillusionment or disappointment. The word applies to the effect of the huge photographs in the show, which depict fantasy landscapes seen through the windshields of luxury vehicles.

The photographs pair interiors of BMWs and Cadillacs strewn with designer logos with images of mountains and meadows, the dreamscapes to which plush S.U.V.’s promise to carry their charges.

Mr. Gispert, born in Jersey City in 1972, now lives in Brooklyn. He has explored his Cuban American background and borrowed totems of hip-hop culture in his past pieces: gold jewelry, boom boxes, big speakers, large chrome wheel rims. In a video piece called “Block Watching,” he depicts a cheerleader mouthing the sound of a car alarm.

Bert Rodriguez, Luis Gispert in SUMMER TIME BLUES at Fredric Snitzer Gallery

August 3-September 5, 2011
Opening Reception: August 13th, 7:30-9:30 pm

Fredric Snitzer Gallery

2247 NW 1 Place
Miami, FL

Blue–statistically the most popular color–can soothe or electrify; it can convey mourning or celebration, melancholy or elation. Although we commonly associate both the Blues and Picasso’s “Blue Period” with suffering, the color blue can also connote erotic passion, security, infinity, purity, fluent thought, and spiritual ascension.

The Fredric Snitzer Gallery’s “Summer Time Blues” exhibition features artists ALICE AYCOCK, ZACK BALBER, LORIEL BELTRAN, TIMOTHY BUWALDA, SEAN DACK, JACIN GIORDANO, LUIS GISPERT, GAVIN PERRY, BERT RODRIGUEZ, DIEGO SINGH, and MICHAEL VASQUEZ, each of whom distinctly and intuitively explores the color which arguably has the greatest emotional and spiritual range.
